What Are You Playing?

March 30th, 2007 by Crusader

What’ve you been playing of late on Linux?

As for myself, it’s just been DEFCON and, after reading about Spacewar again, KSpaceDuel.

    I love it too. XEvil would be such a better game if its documentation didn’t cross the theme and atmosphere in such a bad way, and the code is crusty and worse on Linux.

    In what little spare time arrives, I find myself in the swamps in Hexen 1 a cleric, eDuke 32 or jfDuke 32 with some friends at Barnes ‘N’ Noble in the parking lot on our wireless relays, the same with a couple sessions of Abuse-sdl. I helped some customers into their entertainment with Majesty and Savage, and that earned them a decent respect for the capabilities of Linux.

    A real good “hangout” is on The Mana World, and it has some good developments. I heard someone is petitioning the main coder to incorporate art in non-supported mode of the game, so they could use graphic/anime of commercial games like Diablo or Starcraft, or Commander Keen. Would be great to mix with the environment, instead of re-invent “the wheel” to adapt the graphics and sound, but then it is only a 2D world.

    I’m homeless now, and haven’t realy had any sessions of entertainment on a computer for any longer than an hour, and has been mostly to sell some service or labor of a system administrator etc.

    I have been discussing a matter with a friend to use an embedded console with a 5-cent coin-operation mechanism and put it next to the snack-bar at the beach courtyard to compete with the Meter-Witch and her cemented consoles of ticket doom. A good application for such a console would be and similar quickies, or somthing remeniscent or in the form of a total conversion on the graphics subsysten of a game interactive of somthing like this…

    Mostly OpenTTD, and a few built in Gnome games. Last time I had some free time I played ET, and some Civ 4 on Windows (don’t hit me)

    Most of my time is spent playing Dropteam – the “Creature Zoo 3″ mod is nice and excessive.

    I’ve also been indulging my stop-motion martial arts fantasies with Toribash, which recently released 2.4.

    Play Defcon, Coldwar, and mostly ET. Waiting for ET Quake Wars. I’ve bought all the other linux games mentioned below, but I pretty much stick with ET. It’s just fun.

    Warcraft III, X2 even though the port to Linux is not very good, Civ IV, Oblivions, Dosbox .70. I do all my gaming under Linux or on a gaming console like the Wii. Also I agree with others this site needs a better way to do comments and I believe more would post then as this site has pretty high traffic it would seem according to netcraft.

    There are no Linux games out that I find worth playing. Same goes in general for all PC games. It’s easier, cheaper, and IMO more fun to play games on systems designed ground up for them, like my DS or Wii.

    If I do play anything on my computer, it’s usually an old console game on ZSNES or one of the other emulators. If the Wii virtual console ever stops sucking and has more than a handful of games, though, I doubt I’ll even do that anymore.

    If Puzzle Quest ever does do the promised Linux release, though, things might change, even if I do already have it on my DS.

    Got a new-ish graphics card so have been catching up on some missed games. Just finished Half-life 2 using Wine (no crashes). Before that I finished Darwinia. For multiplayer I do Tremulous and Enemy Territory. Also playing Xmoto and ManiaDrive for quick addictive fun.
